To help you identify strategies that might work for you in 2020, we’re pleased to present this tax planning guide. It features many “What’s new!” sidebars summarizing some of the most significant tax law changes that have gone into effect this year, including relief to help taxpayers during the COVID-19 crisis. It also provides a refresher on the extensive changes that generally went into effect two years ago under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) — and their potential impact on tax planning. Finally, it shows how various strategies apply to different situations, and presents charts and case studies to help you understand the specifics of tax planning..

Understanding the ins and outs of recent tax law changes as well as the TCJA and determining which steps to take isn’t easy.
